      Case of the Nervous Accomplice was written by Erle Stanley Gardner (published by First Ballantine Books, 1993)

      Perry Mason is still one of my favorite fictional lawyers; I find him charming, smart and resolute with tough cases and clients who were telling him the exact truth.

      Sybil Harlan is aware that her husband, Enright, is completely infatuated with his client, Roxy , but was willing to forgive him and take him back. In her scheming and planning,


      she engaged Perry Mason to act on her behalf and acquired some shares in a real-estate company which Roxy and Enright had property negotiations with. She was at the same time spying on their activities from a deserted house. Then one of the shareholders was found murdered at this house, and Sybil was the obvious suspect. Perry Mason advised her to take a taxi trip; and through his expert questioning, he was able ...

      • to confuse the taxi driver, whom the prosecution had brought in as their witness. Mason soon discovered that it was more than infidelity that led to the murder.

        It had always been a battle of wits between Perry Mason and his longtime courtroom adversary, Hamilton Burger, whose greatest dream was to lock Mason up in jail. Burger often lost most of his cases to Mason, who had intelligence plus a clever twist of mind.

        He was very sharp; being able to detect errors and discrepancies with just a glance at any reports or documents. Erle Stanley Gardner really wrote great courtroom dramas; interesting without being mundane and academic. The chase, investigation and the courtroom exchanges were very exciting , without the dryness and boredom of legal proceedings. Though it is an old story, written in an age of typewriters, gumshoes and outdated detecting, the suspense and intrigue is ageless.
